  • Excerpt: Rounded and enveloping, the body is unctuous and exciting and, frankly, hard to put down. Notes of Mexican chocolate linger on the finish — slightly hot, but so seductive. A huge win.

  • Excerpt: Baker’s 13-Year-Old delivers a quintessential bourbon flavor profile with nice balance. It's certainly hard to dislike and grew on me the more I drank it.

  • Excerpt: All in all, this is a pleasant bottling. For 13 years old, it's not over oaked and fans of Beam's distinct profile will really hit it off with this bottle. The proof is right, though the finish isn't the most captivating.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Bakers 13yr is a new, Limited Release from Beam/Suntory as part of their Bakers Bourbon rebrand. It's bottled at the same ABV as Bakers (the original) and the new Bakers 7, so this should be an educational comparison to see how those extra 6(ish) years of aging impact things.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, funky, rich. Musty tobacco, beam funk to the 10th degree, peanut brittle and rising bread. Sticky toffee.

  • Taste:

    A hair thin on the palate but lots of great flavor. The proof feels right as well. Toffee, peanut brittle, a pleasant bit of oak here. Some vanilla bean, a bit of nougat.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish - it's pleasant but short lived for the most part. Lots of caramel, roasted peanut, toffee and a hint of wafer cookie.

  • Overall:

    All in all, this is a pleasant bottling. For 13 years old, it's not over oaked and fans of Beam's distinct profile will really hit it off with this bottle. The proof is right, though the finish isn't the most captivating.
